I enjoyed this second book in The Broken Earth trilogy. The world building is fascinating in these stories, and the characters, while intense, are memorable. This book built off of the first story, and it had a new focus on one of the characters that was only alluded in the first book. I can't re...

This was a great fantasy read and worthy of the Hugo award. The story takes place in what appears to be a very distant future earth where geologically the earth is always threatening to bring a catastrophic event that would lead to widespread death and destruction (a "fifth season"). There are multi...

Eines der ersten Bilder, das N.K. Jemisin veranlasste, die „Inheritance Trilogy“ zu schreiben, war das eines Kindes, das mit Planeten spielt. Angesichts dieser frühen Inspiration ist es wohl nicht verwunderlich, dass sich Sieh zu einem ihrer Lieblingscharaktere entwickelte. In einem Interview erklär...

N.K. Jemisin verdankt ihre Karriere als erfolgreiche Schriftstellerin zum Teil ihrem Vater. Als sie 30 wurde, durchlebte sie eine Art Midlife-Crisis. Sie entschied, dass sie bestimmte Dinge in ihrem Leben erreichen wollte. Sie wollte herausfinden, ob das Schreiben, bisher ein Hobby, für sie eine Zuk...

I thought The Fifth Season was a masterclass in world-building, but N K Jemisin picks up her world by its ears and just keeps going in this excellent sequel. I am utterly entranced by the details here (honestly, world-building is catnip for me), and here it is more than matched by excellent characte...

And I will tell you everything of how, later, as the quiet of death descended, I whispered: Right now.Right now. And the earth whispered back: BurnSo look. I buddy read this with Joanna, and I'm glad. I sucked at it, we mostly touched base about where we were at...because if you read the...

I don’t always agree with hype and I don’t consider a Hugo a guarantee I’ll enjoy (or even rate) something. So let me go on record now: I’ll read anything N K Jemisin writes in future on the strength of The Fifth Season. Every accolade it has received is well-deserved; it is staggeringly good in eve...

Such a good book! I was so impressed and couldn't get through it quickly enough (even though I was visiting family the whole time). I don't even know where to begin without spoiling things, but this book really made me think and it made me feel in ways no book had for a long time. Just an absolute r...

This book might have started out slowly, but once it got going, I couldn't put it down. Both the ideas in the book and the way they were presented were amazing and the effects of being seen as "less than" are shown so well. Overall, I loved the book and definitely recommend it to anyone who isn't sp...

I knew from the heartbreak that came in the first two books in this series that I should expect this one to be similar. Honestly, though, I think this one was easier. It's hard to top the extreme amount of pain and loss that happened in book one. Hoa finally really grew on me in this book. I was f...
